This book tells us what heaven is like in practical terms based on the Bible. It considers the entire Bible, both direct and indirect references to heaven, and presents the complete picture in a personal and encouraging style. Its ultimate purpose is to show that the destiny in heaven of human beings is so wonderful and fulfilling that we need not fear death. Even premature deaths, though tragic in our missing the departed, does not rob them of a meaningful life. Heaven holds much more for us than we have been led to believe.

Mr. Waterman does not get lost in endless analysis or speculation. He does not present stories of visions of heaven or out of body experiences; those are better told by their own authors. In a few places he corroborates hints placed in scripture with visionary testimony, but these are clearly identified, and he always starts from a solid foundation of scripture. Mr. Waterman tackles the common questions about heaven in a straightforward, conversational style. As a result this book is reasonably short and easy to read, although its implications may have the reader happily thinking about heaven for some time.

These are some of the questions answered in this book: What will we do for thousands or millions of years? What will we be like: our bodies, our minds? What kind of a place is heaven; what is it like? What happens when people die? Will we be punished, or will we get rewards? Has heaven always been the same; will it change in the future? What will happen to the world in the future? What about the new heaven and new earth? Who goes to heaven?

In the author’s own words: My sincere hope in writing this book is to accomplish three objectives. First, I hope to provide encouragement for those who have lost someone dear too early in life. Second, I hope to help us all have a more accurate and complete perspective on the events of our lives. And third, I hope to show how we can have a pleasant, even exciting anticipation of what lies beyond the grave. If this writing accomplishes even just one of these objectives in your life, then I will be humbly pleased, and you will enjoy your life a little more and worry a little less.
